He said that Pakistan is engaging all countries around the world. He admitted that food security is one of the major problems in Pakistan as there is a shortage of wheat and other commodities.

“We buy wheat and other commodities from Ukraine but now we will witness food security issues due to a warring situation there. We want Russia and Ukraine to end the war as it is affecting the region and the Pakistani nation as well. Moreover, climate changes are also increasing the food security issues.”

The foreign minister said that he is against real estate work on agricultural land. Pakistan is an agriculture state that could locally address the food security issues, he added.
